Hey, When i play Meant to live by switchfoot on my guitar, i found out that the chord C2 (Cadd9) works better than G. i know it really doesnt make much difference but if ouy really listen, i think it works.

Actually if you listen closely i believe it's

C2 G
Am F(without holding high E)

wouldn't be maybe a little easier to do if you had the lyrics with the chords?
just a suggestion.

I don't think you touch the high E or B the entire song even though it seems like it. But I played with the CD and he doesn't go up that high at all. Well, except when he's strumming.

i needs lyrics with the chords

Well there's also the piano part in On Fire. And you don't even need to be able to play the piano to do it. Right hand does these notes C B / C B / C B / G A. Left hand does C G D / G D A / A E B C / F C G. Use your ear. Keep repeating over and over. Changes are pie. Screw the xylophone,I don't know it. Enjoy!

You can't put the lyrics on here or else we would get into a whole copyright thing. If any one wants the lyrics to this song just go to and you can find just about every song on there.
